9781626190849: Legends and Lore of Lake Ontario (American Legends)

Named by the Hurons, "Ontario" means "Lake of Shining Waters." Beneath this gleaming surface, though, the easternmost of the Great Lakes hides enigmas from thousands of years of history. Ghosts linger on the surface, and monsters swim below, frightening sailors on the water. Smugglers used Lake Ontario during the War of 1812 and Prohibition and continue to do so today--Ontario's darkness providing the cover needed to elude law enforcement. With this collection of lore, local author Susan Peterson Gateley tracks down the real Maid of the Mist and investigates the meaning behind the names Soup Harbor, Sheba Island and the Devil's Nose. Join Gateley as she delves deep below the waves to uncover these and other legends, lore and secrets from Lake Ontario.
